"What really happened? I asked Evans how much he pressed for independent verification of the party. He said he asked for the name of the hotel, and McFarland could not remember it. The reporter did not ask who invited the young man to the party, who accompanied him or who else might have witnessed the lurid events." Some damn fine reporting by Mr. Evans right there, and Kashemeyia Adams comes off as her charming self with unspecified allegations lobbed at Texas fans in general. Apparently "it was submitted for a high school grade" is now enough corroboration for the New York Times to go with a story.
